We will answer your questions about our live bee hive removal service. Then when we are at your home performing the bee removal, we will share with you everything we do, and you can watch us the entire time.
We can bring you a bee suit if you are feeling adventurous.
Our customers ask us many questions when we do their bee removal and want to share them with you. Here are just seven, but many more are not listed.
We will never exterminate honey bees. They are always removed and relocated humanely and with lots of love and care.
We are two passionate beekeepers who love honeybees and enjoy rescuing these adorable pollinating heroes.
"Do you save the bees and not exterminate them?"
We at Vegas Bees do what we say.
These are honeycombs from a bee hive we rescued. You can see the capped brood, which the baby bees are in, waiting to be born.
These combs need to be handled gently and taken care of right away.
Exterminators would never do this. They would only spray the baby brood and the entire colony with chemicals and poison, killing instead of saving them.
Bee Exterminators will make this toxic mess on your property. It's not safe for you, your family, or your pets.
"Where do the bees go after they are saved?"
We have a three-acre Joshua Tree Preserve & Wildlife Habitat in the high desert of Arizona.
This apiary is where the bees go to live their best, most happy lives.
The air is clean, and there is lots of fresh water here. Hundreds of acres around us are undeveloped.
The beehives are insulated, and shade boards are kept on top of their hive boxes to provide extra cooling from the Arizona summers. That is why we choose Apimaye Beehive Boxes!
"Will you show us pictures of the bees?"
We enjoy showing our customers images of the beehive removal process; after all, it is their family of bees.
So many will observe us working together (from afar) and take numerous pictures and videos.
It's fantastic that they're so interested in everything we do during the beehive rescues. We are blessed to work with many wonderful and caring people who want to save the bees.
"Do honey bees need to be saved?"
Honeybees are responsible for pollinating 83 percent of all flowering plants.
Even more impressive is that almost 137 fruits and vegetables are under their pollinating love and care. These are foods we eat and enjoy every day.
The bees need to be saved for our health and food supply because we need these food sources to be healthy and get the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals.
But unfortunately, climate change is knocking down bee population numbers worldwide, so we need to work together as a team to save the honeybees.
People like you are essential to the survival of the bees, and we thank you for being you and for your trust in us at Vegas Bees.

"Does saving honey bees hurt local bees?"
Honeybees were brought here in 1622. Four hundred years of living in the United States is quite a long time. They have been together with the local bees for centuries, coexisting nicely.
As diversity is important in every part of our lives, we want all pollinating bees to enjoy happy lives alongside one another. We think the most significant threat to bees today is unmanaged and out-of-control pesticide usage.
We don't want a monoculture in any part of life. On the contrary, diversity makes life more robust and enjoyable.
The natural swarming that the busy bees do helps them bring new genes to the hive. This way they can prevent intermixing with their same genes.
"Where do you save bees from?"
We have removed and saved bees from many places here in Las Vegas, Henderson, and Boulder City, Nevada.
Some examples of places the bees made their hives that we had to remove were in:
Sheds, Roofs, Eaves, Soffits, Trees, Shrubs, Block Walls, Garage Walls, Truck Tires, Bedroom Walls, Sprinkler Boxes, Telephone Poles, Cable TV Boxes, BBQ Grills, Compost Bins, Shipping Containers, Brick Columns, Stucco Facades, Water Fountains, and more!
"Do the bees ever sting you?"
Honeybees are very similar in temperament to people. We all know that many people are kind and mostly pleasant.
Then you come across a few who don't like us. The same seems to go for honey bees.
When approaching a nest, the guards will sum you up as good or evil. Wearing dark colors is bad; wearing white and light colors is good.
First impressions are always important, but things may change once you try to break into their house.
A puff of smoke at the hive entrance and sides where we enter the nest will help. It does not hurt them; they move away from it just as we would.
The smoke helps to disrupt them from communicating their attack message to the colony.
Yes, we do get stung. However, bees only sting as a last resort. We do our best to stay calm and give out good energy to try and relax them.
We at Vegas Bees love the honey bees and want only the best for them. Yes, we can help you with your bee problems.
We are moving the world to a better place, one bee hive at a time.
Thank you for being so loving and kind to the bees. We wouldn't be here without them.
